Advanced Lions Leadership Institute (ALLI)


COVID-19 Updates

Lions Clubs International is working with area leaders to facilitate smaller institutes in locations that will allow safe gatherings. As the details of these institutes are confirmed new dates and locations will be updated in the schedule below. If you have already applied to an institute you will receive an email notification alerting you to any changes that have affected the institute to which you applied.

Pre-institute Attendance Guidelines

In the best interest and safety of our Lions and others outside of our organization that we may encounter during travel to and participation in this training, we ask that you consider the guidelines below. Lions Clubs International will fully refund all participant fees collected prior to attendance should any Lion elect not to attend the institute due to any of the following reasons:

Before Leaving Home

  • Follow relevant guidance provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), or your local health authority.
  • Adhere to all government issued travel restrictions issued by the region which you will be traveling to and the region you will be traveling from.
  • Continually monitor and evaluate your own health and the health of those people who you are in close contact with.  If you have been in contact with any persons who have tested positive with COVID-19 or who have had symptoms within 14 days prior to your arrival at this event, we ask that you refrain from attendance.
  • Stay home if you feel sick.

Advanced Lions Leadership Institutes focus on building the skills of Lions leaders to prepare them for leadership responsibilities at zone, region and district levels.

Qualified candidates are Lions that have completed a successful term as club president, but have not yet attained the position of First Vice District Governor.

Candidates must be willing to commit to all days of the institute. Participation is limited to Lions from the Constitutional area noted in the schedule below.


Lions who meet the qualifications may apply to the Advanced Lions Leadership Institute. Applications will be available four months prior to the event. If you are interested in applying, please download the application from the list below or obtain a copy of the application from your Global Leadership Team District Coordinator. Because of the high number of applications received by the association, acceptance into the institute is not guaranteed.

Cost of the Institute

Lions Clubs International will provide meals and lodging according to the dates and schedule of the institute. Please note that a non-refundable participation fee of US$125.00 will be required to offset a portion of these costs for all institutes. This fee will be due no less than six weeks prior to the institute start date. Please do not send funds until you receive a letter of acceptance to the institute. Participants are also responsible to pay for their own transportation and related travel expenses to and from the institute site.
